Black Thunder Powerboats, a boat manufacturer formerly based in Hannibal, Missouri, has purchased Marina 44 for its new headquarters. The company, which suspended boat building several years ago due to economic conditions, plans to build its hulls at its Hannibal facility, then transport them to its new Lake location for rigging and completion. They plan to sell gasoline and offer rack storage and maintenance services as well.

A good question is whether the boat completion activity at the new location would be considered, under Camden County's Land Use Regulations, an industrial activity, which isn't allowed under the current commercial zoning (B-2 General Commercial) for that property.

Our nearby neighbor, Marina 44, has been sold for $1.8 million. The sale closed on March 29th. The new owner is a gentleman from Chesterfield, Missouri. The marina will become a full-service marina, including gas sales, boat repair, rack storage, etc. Iguana Watersports will be renting six slips from the marina for boat and personal watercraft rentals this season.

One of the best benefits of living at the Lake is seeing birds that you'd rarely, if ever, see in the big city. How many city dwellers can say a red-tailed hawk landed on their window ledge, no more than five feet away from them? Here's a 26-second video of such an incident that happened today, in addition to a two-minute video of eagle and blue heron activity on the lake last February. (Click on a thumbnail below to view.)
